A rundown on events in NSW
One of the best ways to check out the latest model releases, updates, and accessories in person and find everything you need for caravanning in one place is to visit an exhibition.
There is a full calendar of expos, shows and events held annually throughout NSW in both Sydney and regional areas.
The Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW hosts some of the largest shows, including the Sydney Caravan, Camping, RV and Holiday Supershow, which has become a ‘must attend’ event for thousands of caravan enthusiasts.
Over the years, this show has grown to enormous proportions. It now boasts over 300 exhibitors with the latest in caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers, holiday parks, fifth wheelers, slide ons, tents and camping equipment, parks and sites, accessories – everything you need to kit yourself out for a fantastic adventure.
The Supershow is held at the Rosehill Racecourse in April over nine days; the next show is 9th-17th April 2016.
This is an extremely popular show, so it is best to plan your visit well ahead – you may need a few days to cover all the exhibitors you want to visit!
Tickets can be purchased online from the show website, which also details the seminar programme, accommodation options and information about travelling.
The show provides free parking on site and a free shuttle bus service from Parramatta Station and Parramatta Wharf to connect with ferries from Circular Quay. What could be easier?

Newcastle Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo
For those in the Hunter region, the Newcastle Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo is for you. Held in February each year at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre and Showground, the expo attracts over 180 exhibitors.
Mark the date – Friday 5th to Sunday 7th 2016 and check out the latest models across the leisure vehicle market – caravans, campers, motorhomes, camper trailers, plus all the latest in camping equipment and holiday parks and the latest in gear, accessories and know how.
Tickets are only $15 for adults, and children under 16 years accompanied by adults are free. It is a dog-friendly event, so it is a perfect outing for the entire family.

Penrith Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo
Later in the year, in September, it’s time to check and head to Penrith for the Penrith Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo at the Penrith Panthers Exhibition Centre.
Another great show was held over three days, featuring over 160 exhibitors in a sensational, well-planned location. The timing is perfect to catch up on information and equipment in time for the Christmas holiday season.
South Coast Caravan, Camping and Holiday Expo
For avid enthusiasts, complete novices, and just the ‘generally interested’ located in southern NSW, the South Coast Expo is for you. Held over three days in November each year, the South Coast show is the perfect opportunity to see over 100 exhibitors and talk to the experts about your caravan, camping and holiday requirements.
For show details and ticketing, check out the website.
Other Regional Shows
In addition to the major shows and expos hosted by the Caravan and Camping Industry Association, several smaller regional shows are held each year by other organisers.
The Coffs Coast 4WD Caravan Camping Show is held in Coffs Harbour in June each year with over 100 exhibitors. For upcoming dates and details, check out.
Grimmo Promotions is also the organiser of the Central Coast 4WD, Caravan, and Camping Show. In 2015, it was held in September at the Mingara Recreation Club in Tumbi Umbi and featured over 110 exhibitors. I think it's worth a look if you are in the area. For upcoming dates and details.
While the internet is sensational and convenient as a great source of information, it doesn’t match the personal experience of attending an expo, where you can talk to the experts about your specific requirements and inspect a wide range of equipment and vehicles in one place.
Don’t forget to have your mobile device handy. At the same time, you visit the show to quickly access the Jade Caravan Finance Calculator to calculate a quick ballpark estimate of repayments when something catches your interest.
Then, when you’re ready to purchase, speak to a Jade Caravan Finance Consultant to organise your loan. Why not talk to us before you head to the expo and manage pre-approved caravan loans?
